Looking for a box with the following specs:

  • 100mbit/s unmetered port (1gbit/s with bandwidth limit is not an option in my specific use case)
  • 8 cores
  • 8-16 gb ram
  • 2 x 512GB HDDs
  • **Bitcoin payment **
  • 99.99% uptime and stable network
  • 1 IPv4 address, 1 IPv6 address (min.)
  • will need either a rescue console OR KVM-over-IP

Budget: 30$/mo without BMC, >30$/mo with BMC

    Can you not just have linux set ethernet port to negotiate at 100M?

    OP might be looking for guaranteed bandwidth.

    It's highly preferable that a port speed is defined by the upstream switch. In some cases auto-negotiation may not work and you will incur some unwanted issues. Also I don't want to experiment with any possible provider and then ask refunds in case something goes wrong, and, since there is a possibility to post a request with my specs, I'd rather this way.
    Also, yes, I am looking for a guaranteed bandwidth.

    The budget is fine, the only issue is that he wants bitcoin which limits his issue quite a lot.

    I respectfully disagree.
    $30 is not a fine budget for his requested requirements.

    It is not "unmetered" but 50 TB are nearly the maximum amount of traffic you can squeeze out of a full duplex fast ethernet link.

    Of course this offer is still above OP's budget. But it exists.

    You probably didn't read that part in the OP:

    Budget: 30$/mo without BMC, >30$/mo with BMC

    which probably means that if the server has IPMI/Ilo/iDrac then he is ready to pay more for the enterprise hardware, while 30$ or €/mo is quite a possible price for very low end hardware without IPMI that some providers do (e.g. Kimsufi KS-11 @ €23.99), so yes, it's quite realistic and possible to find.

    Oh I read it, I just don't agree.
    He probably wants to spend $35 for an enterprise system with BMC.
    Note the prices of the quotes already in this thread....no one even comes close to his requested pricing/specs! ;-)

  • Oh I read it, I just don't agree.

    ... And what about the Kimsufi link I posted? It's very close to OPs specs, except they don't accept BTC (I am currently using that server). Add a possible "BTC fee" -> you have ~30$/mo. Still disagreeing?

  • AMXRTAMXRT Member

    50-60 euro is a pretty good price for specs posted above, but anyway, the server hasn't necessarily to be a 1U with BMC, I know that some providers provide rescue consoles on cheap hw via PXE and it's a solid solution to KVM.

    I would still like to know if there are low end providers like Kimsufi mentioned by @legalstuff but accepting Bitcoins.

    Oh I read it, I just don't agree.
    He probably wants to spend $35 for an enterprise system with BMC.

    It's very unsafe to assume it when someone writes 'more than X', and you are actually being offensive. I am aware of the market, so, please be so kind and keep your assumptions for yourself. In case you don't understand the difference between a server with BMC and without and their huge price difference on the market it's your problem.
    Paying >30$ for a server without BMC means you are paying for a cheap near-laptop specs plugged into a switch that has a public IP address, but you probably don't understand it, thus you stubbornly keep "disagreeing" and spreading offtopic here.
    If you got some offer, please post it, otherwise don't interfere.
